Win Yourself Some Capra Collection!

Last week saw the launch of Knit Picks' new Capra Collection for 2013.
And I was lucky enough to have a pattern included!
It's Dendrochronology: check it.

I'm delighted to offer the entire ebook in this giveaway (srsly, can this week get any better? Sales and giveaways abound!)

The ebook has six patterns. You can see more about them all here.

There's Phoenix Sweater, a cozy-looking, long-sleeved, wide-striped sweater.

And the Dianthe Cardigan, a beautifully-cabled piece.

Blazing Autumn is a lovely, dancing-sort of scarf.

And the Genia Pullover is a happy riot of textural glory.

Don't forget about my designer-friend Hilary Smith Callis' pattern, the Beau Cardigan. Ruffles and pockets and cozy!



Anyhows, here's what you do to enter the giveaway:
Reply to this post and let me know what project you've had the most fun knitting. It could be fun for any reason, in any season. On a boat, made with a (angora) goat. Under a table, with loads (or none) of cables!

Sorry for the Seuss-i-ness.

The giveaway closes on Tuesday September 24, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday September 25. Good luck everyone!
ps: don't forget to include some way for me to contact you, should you win!

I am having a ton of fun knitting "Miss Winkle" by Martina Behm. I love the circular loops on the edge.

I'm designing a sweater right now that is so much fun! Hard work, but I think I might be close. It's diagonal ribbing.

I am so in love with Dendrochronology!! I have some TFA red label in poppy in my stash, I don't usually wear red so have been looking for a project where it could be a fun accent on a blue or turquoise background, and I think this is it!

I loved working on 'feather and fan shawl' from 'a gathering of lace'

I have fun knitting everything! Oddly enough, some of the best memories are from simple things that I get to knit while at knitting group, so I can talk and interact with other people and have memories from that. Love your pattern!

I loved making the "Cardigan for Merry" by annypurls. I loved seeing the reverse cables progress.

I am having the most fun knitting a shawl with beads. This is not my first shawl but it is the first time using beads.

I love knitting with beads! I had a lot of fun knitting, "Quite Continental" by Boo Knits. I used light beads on a deep, dark blue yarn. It's my favorite!

I am knitting a Stephen West design called Banaue Breeze, that is drapey and fun and unexpectedly challenging in places.

I spun and knit for my husband a basic raglan out of merino yak. So soft and lovely to work with.

I made a giant stuffed TARDIS for my boyfriend—it was my first real knitting project and involved intarsia AND fair isle, and took months and months to complete, but that was the most fun I had knitting anything.

I have two and both were made for the same sister. One was a sweater that had cables and the pattern has the same name as my sister. The other is a dress I made for her out of ribbon yarn. She wore the dress at the baptism of her daughter whom she adopted from China two and a half years after a bone marrow transplant or stage 4 cancer. The sweater was made shortly after she had the transplant.

I think the Wonderland Socks top my list for most fun. It went so crazy fast and I loved how the cat kept appearing and disappearing under my needles.

Tricia said...

I would really love to make your pattern! It is my favorite! It is so fun to see designers who I interact with, in Knit Picks magazine. Makes me feel special, hehe

I really love knitting baby stuff. I made my daughter a cardigan with Celtic cables, and I had so much fun knitting it!

I'm having fun knitting socks in a mystery knit along. So fun to see how it's coming along.

I love knitting any project with multiple colours. They make me happy :)

I would love to knit the Genia Pullover, between the drape of the neckline and sleeves and the simple cables..it screams favorite cool weather jumper.

I would love to win this ebook. I am trying to find some new fun patterns:-)

I've knitted a few Hansi singh patterns, and those are CRAZY because you have no idea how what you're knitting is going to turn into a hermit crab or an owl, but somehow, it does!

NanaJen said...

I love this collection! I had the most fun knitting for my first granddaughter. I know it sounds "cheesy", but the excitement of knitting the precious little baby items for this yet-to-be-known little girl were the best knitting memories :) RavID-jaydawnrn

I'm in the middle of knitting Channel by Yelena Malcolm and really enjoying it. It's easy, but has just enough interesting things to keep me engaged and not get bored.

That's a really hard question but I did knit 2 Lady Eleanor shawls- each using 4 colors of Noro Silk Garden. It was so hard to put down my knitting. The entrelac squares go quick and I could't wait to see how the colors would dance together which each new entrelac square.

I think the most fun I've had knitting was the first time I tried top down set in sleeves- they seemed like such a miracle as they came to fruition!

I have fun knitting everything! I think my favorite is when I learn new techniques or try out new shaping cable or lace patterns...it's so much fun to see them materialize. I think that's one of the attractions of knitting for me is the boundless creativity of knitting as a craft as well as the soothing feeling of the familiar when I just want I simple project.

YAY! I am in lurve with this pattern, hun. I think my most favourite project ever was a group project - my friends and I made a wedding blanket for a dear friend. We used yarn that another friend dyed and honestly, it was just a really cool "girls bonding" project. Our bride friend loved the present :)

I would have a lot of fun knitting your Dendrochronology. I can picture myself wearing it with all different clothes and ways. Love it!

stefanie g-r said...

Thanks for the awesome giveaway, I got the new KnitPicks catalog in the mail yesterday and was excited to see your design!

I've really been enjoying knitting sweaters for myself this summer....especially since I'll finally get to start wearing them!

Sheila said...

Is it wrong of me to enter when I just won that wonderful yak yarn? Eh, I'll risk looking greedy, cuz there are some great patterns in this collection. Love those thin stripes on Dendrochronology. What I really want to make tho is the Genia pullover - I just love the sleeves.

Bonnie said...

I have knitted a few entrelac scarves, which were fine, but for some reason the entrelac hat I made was A LOT of fun.

I think one of the projects I had the most fun knitting was the Batik shawl. It was one of the first shawls I ever knit, and it was a combination of cables and lace that should have terrified me. Or the casting on of hundreds of stitches. Instead I had a great time with the challenge.

I loved working on my Bearded Viking Helmet for my favorite (and ridiculous) Minnesota fan, the hubby!

Knitting the Langston sweater for my daughter. Fun to knit and love seeing her wear it!

Katie said...

I loved making Piper's Journey in Quince and Co Chickadee. Soothing combo of pattern and yarn.
